CED in the History of Media Technology : Time Line
CED in the History of Media Technology
This pictorial timeline is an expansion of a presentation originally given in the media technology forum at the PCA/ACA annual conference.
That presentation was mainly limited to a history of video technology, whereas here I'm including many other media types dating from the days of the Edison cylinder to the present time.
A goal with this timeline is to provide a decent picture of the technology at hand and a brief description of it, with links to more extensive web sites when they are available. This stems from my habit when picking up a book, particularly those that have picture sections in the middle, to look at those pictures and read the captions prior to reading anything else in the book.
